California, primarily Southern California and the San Francisco bay,
and many of our clients are General contractors/construction companies.  I
would like to know if there are any general publications that go to

the contractor/construction company industry that would obviously be
ideal.  I could send a postcard, but an advertisement or flier
included in a statewide publication that is being read already is more
cost-effective.  A generous tip will be given based on very useful
